Providing reliable surface water supplies to local farms and ranches is one of the primary reasons Yuba Water Agency exists. Each year, Yuba Water supplies about 260,000 acre-feet of water to eight local water districts, known as the member units. These districts supply 60,000 acres of productive farmland with water, enabling farmers to raise rice, peaches, plums, and other crops. Crops and livestock are an important source of jobs and income for many Yuba County workers and families.

Watch to learn more about the importance of that water supply and how it benefits farmers and ranchers, wildlife and Yuba County's economy.
